Followers of Drew Taggart or Alex Paul from The Chainsmokers, the duo known for their modular synth work and vocal samples, on Facebook already know that they are at it again. And they will be doing it again once every month for the remainder of 2018.
If you are dying to hear more from the Chainsmokers because you are completely addicted, needing hot beats flowing through your ears like a yellow-fingered cowboy needs his Marlboros before you simply “can’t even,” fear not; the partners are currently releasing one song per month from their anticipated sophomore album, so fans have something to look forward to all year round. That is at least twelve times you can get your Chainsmokers fix and it is cheaper than a pack of smokes in New York City.
Song number four was up to bat this April is titled, “Somebody,” and features Drew Love, a foxy R&B artist based in Washington D.C. Mr. Love previously released covers on Youtube under the name “Cl9ud,” and is part of various other projects such as the duo, “THEY.” The three songs released earlier in the year are from earliest to most recent, “Sick Boy,” “You Owe Me,” and “Everybody Hates Me.”
But wait there’s more, not only is there a new tune to listen to, but the duo have released a miniature demonstration of the making of their new single, “Somebody.” The clip does leave something to be desired. It is short and the song appears to be created out of nowhere except for some vocals that were supposed to be part of another track. Just as the video starts to ge interesting it is over. However, the partners have promised a more in depth video about how “Somebody” came to fruition with more details and maybe even some tips and tricks of the trade. This prospective gem adds another piece to look forward to from the EDM- pop allstars this year.
